3di follows these principles to help you achieve successful localization:


Fewer words

Every word counts when you have to translate it. We help you work out what is worth translating. We also know how to write, and how to coach you how to write, so that you get the message across with fewer words.


Better words

Be clear, be consistent. Translating will be much cheaper and quicker. We can set up and manage terminology lists specific to your product. We also know how to apply the same principles to graphics, illustrations, apps, video, audio, and navigation elements of e-learning and web content.


Good tools

Apply the best, to get the most from smart people. We can use computer assisted translation (CAT) and machine translation (MT) tools. We know and use the tools and technologies you might use to create and build documents, software, e-learning and websites. We can apply specific combinations of tools, processes, scripts, and workarounds, to ensure the best available tools are supporting your people and our people effectively.


Smart people

Everyone should play to their strengths. They perform better and it’s more fun. We work with talented translators, engineers, testers and DTP specialists all over the world. We define and manage clear responsibilities so that projects are delivered efficiently. Our smart people get on with the complex translation and product localization, so that your smart people don’t have to.
